1977 BMW 633 CSI
This 1977 BMW 633CSI (E24) is a beautiful example of BMW’s golden era. It is powered by a 3.2-litre straight-six-cylinder engine which outputs 147kW/285Nm to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. This Australian delivered example currently displays 184,819km on its odometer since new.
A suave successor to replace the BMW E9 coupe, the BMW 6 Series was unveiled in 1976 and this 633CSI was the first variant available as part of the range. Designated as the E24 in BMW parlance, the two-door coupe exemplified what it meant to drive a sporting coupe – with equal parts luxury and dynamics tied into a distinguished looking package. The shark-nose front end is easily recognisable as classic BMW, with the look now commanding big money on the used car market whether you’re looking at the E24 6 Series or the E28 5 Series. Early-build cars assembled by Karmann, such as this one, are becoming increasingly rare in good condition and are among the most desirable of all E24 6 Series. Karmann only built a small number of these models before BMW took over production of the E24 in-house.
Finished on the outside in the early BMW colour Mint Green, this E24 is fitted with a beige cloth and leather trim and is in largely original condition – not tainted by unnecessary modification which would take away from its rarity. This example currently rides on a set of rare 14-inch TRX multi-spoke alloy wheels, wrapped in Yokohama tyres.
Built in May 1977 and delivered new to its first Sydney-based owner by Capitol Motors in June 1977, this E24 has only had a handful of owners in the 44 years since new. Its early-on service history has been lost to time, though the car comes with a fully documented mechanical history for 34 years out of its 44-year life. Recent works were completed in June 2021 where a complete brake service took place, a regular maintenance service was undertaken, and the car was detailed with a two-stage buffing process and ceramic-coated. In November 2021, various suspension components were replaced, and the car’s air conditioning system was serviced.
The exterior condition of this E24 is well-presented for its age and mileage. Having benefitted from a recent polish, the Mint Green paintwork shows in good order throughout. Some small paint bubbles are found underneath the pinstriping at the rear of the car, though these are minor blemishes on what is otherwise a tidy car. Some exterior trim pieces are beginning to show signs of patina, adding to this car’s vintage appeal. The four wheels look to be in decent condition with no major signs of curb rash, while the tyres retain a deep level of tread.
The interior of this E24 is well preserved, retaining all its original trims. The owner notes some signs of aging on the front seats, though the decision was made to keep the upholstery original, rather than to replace. Trims look to be in good condition for the car’s age. Only some of the warning panel functions operate as normal – this system would need an auto electrician to re-instate back to factory standard.
This vehicle will be sold with extensive documentation detailing its history and most of the original tool kit.
